Huawei Mate 20 to use a 6.9-inch screen

Huawei Mate 20 to use a 6.9-inch screen

The brand has ordered for flat panels and not curved ones. Most phones are opting for a taller 18:9 aspect ratio now instead of the older 16:9 displays, which helps quite a bit for usability, and I'd expect Huawei to utilize all of this to make a phone that's actually still usable.

The new phone is likely to be featured for Huawei's flagship Mate series or come in a separate model.

The Bell doesn't say what Huawei device will get the 6.9-inch screen, but the Huawei Mate 20 Pro might be a candidate. According to a report from Korean source The Bell, Huawei has put in an order for 6.9-inch OLED screens with Samsung, and they're destined for use on a smartphone, and not on a small tablet. The Huawei Mate handset to be launched in this period is dubbed the Mate 20.

Of course, this is all just rumors for now, but it would give the Mate 20 Pro a selling point that the other big name, big screen phones of this year can't compete with. "Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note9 is said to go with a 6.38" panel, and Apple's new big iPhone will have a 6.46" screen. Till now, Apple's biggest screen size is that of iPhone 8 Plus which includes a 5.5-inch display. Also, it is expected to be 0.8 inches larger than the screen of the Huawei P20 Pro.

UN Assembly blames Israel for Gaza violence, but not Hamas
The adopted resolution calls for "consideration of measures to guarantee the safety and protection" of Palestinian civilians. The US, Israel, Australia, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Togo and the Solomon Islands voted against the measure.


Of course, there's bound to be some high-end improvements to make this rumored Mate 20 Pro easier to use.

Based on existing reports, the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are believed to be announced by the end of October this year.

There's multimedia at the heart of everything: photos and videos are the meat and potatoes of smartphones for most users and Huawei wants to maximize the enjoyment of this content.
